MK 29: Working together for a better Kachin landscape - A landscape approach to the upper Ayeyarwady river basin: Building inclusive governance processes to address resource conflicts

MK29 will use a combination of participatory action research processes (PAR) and technical assessment also using and adapting existing spatial data to generate valuable empirical data. This data will be used to feed inclusive multi-stakeholder governance deliberations for improved planning and decision-making, engaging key political actors and civil society groups, and also the private sector. It will also contribute capacity building, particularly for more marginalized stakeholders including women. The project aims to research and to reduce conflict over resources, enhanced river basin and ecosystem health overall, and specifically clean water supply, and resource-based local livelihoods.
